Transoft Solutions Inc. enters the 3D space with the new AutoTURN Pro 3D, a patent-pending technology that allows users to model, analyse and visualise vehicle simulations in a 3D environment. Transoft Solutions is a major developer of industry-leading transportation engineering design software for the AEC community.

Developed to take on the cost and performance challenges faced by transportation projects, AutoTURN Pro 3D is a highly advanced addition to the company’s suite of vehicle swept path analysis software. Featuring patent-pending technology, AutoTURN Pro 3D allows civil and transportation engineers to work on complex vehicle facility and roadway infrastructure projects involving vertical and underside clearance assessments, and detection of terrain or structural obstacles, and help them respond to design changes faster as well as optimise designs with enhanced analysis and visualisation.

With the AutoTURN Pro 3D, issues not anticipated in designing in a 2D plane are now detected and resolved using a 3D space.

The AutoTURN Pro 3D allows engineers to generate 3D vehicle swept path envelopes for design and analysis; create a cross-section through the 3D swept path at a given instance along the simulation and present it in a report format; perform vertical clearance analysis along any section of the 3D swept path checking for potential terrain or object conflicts; perform conflict analysis to detect where objects can interfere with the vehicle 3D swept path; create 3D vehicles by specifying the roofline of the vehicle and the three ground clearance values (front, wheelbase and rear); convert a 2D vehicle simulation into 3D by selecting a terrain for the vehicle to interact with; and work with the supplied sample library of 3D realistic vehicles or use imported realistic 3D models for presentations.
